A Celebration of Liberation – of Genius awakening genius, of Light and delight.
Celebrating an enlightening and very entertaining world famous poem which has sold millions of copies ever since it was translated, adapted and published anonymously in 1859 by the gay suffolk born anglo-irish genius Edward FitzGerald 1809 – 1883.
“The eloquence of quatrain is the completion of sublimity” Persian saying
18 years after the watershed cinema moment of ‘Boys Don’t Cry’, Hotpencil Press and Trans Creative present ‘Boys Don’t Cry – Boys Create’, an evening of Trans Masculinity, reclaimed and re-spun.
For the last 18 years trans and gender nonconforming artists have been telling our own stories, performing our own narratives, demanding to be seen. This new show explores ways to show our bodies and our worlds as they are lived. Not through a mainstream lens! Not with fetishisation! Not with death and destruction! All hail the new 21st Century Boys!
Artists include Husk, Elijah W Harris with Tallulah Rose Haddon, Jamie Hale, Krishna Istha and more tba.
Following the performance event Zorian Clayton of BFI Flare will host a panel to discuss the legacy of ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ and the trans masculine experience on stage and screen over the past two decades.
Event curated by Dr B. and Serge of Hotpencil Press (‘There Is No Word For It’, ‘The (Trans) Mangina Monologues‘, ‘The Butch Monologues’).
Supported by Arts Council England and Superbia at Manchester Pride.
Two years ago, two of the UK’s now finest Drag Kings simultaneously began their cabaret journey, attempting to take it by storm. Through their struggles and barriers as two trans bodies, and in the case of Chiyo – being QTIPOC, these two best friends have decided it’s time to take on a night of their own.
INTRODUCING… WOOF. The night for the stray mutts. It’s time to redefine what is sexy.
WOOF: Redefining Sexy is a smoking hot celebration of alternative/neo burlesque and drag; serving sex and smut. It’s a platform showcasing performers who do not fit the cookie cutter mold of the typical definition of sexy! [Read: those who do not fit the mold of skinny able-bodied cis white man].
We exist to dismantle these barriers that tell us we aren’t good enough.
YOU ARE NOT READY FOR THE LINE-UP WE HAVE IN STORE FOR YOUR GORGEOUS ASSES!
Special WOOF performances from:
Hosted by straight up sexy, Chiyo!
Plus performances from Woof creators, Chiyo and Benjamin Butch!
Smut Bucks will also be available to buy on the door so you can tip the performers if you wish!
If you are a lover of underwear, sexxx, dismantling the cis white patriarchy, neo-burlesque and alternative drag, WOOF.
Doors open at 7pm
Tickets £8/£6 advance and £10/£8 on the door.
